Dove Season to be Good - and longer

The annual Dove Hunting Season kicks off today with hunting for mourning, white-winged and white-tipped doves expected to be really good. There is adaily bag limit of 15 birds, with a possession limit of 45.

The season is divided up into two sessions with the first from Sept 1st to Nov. 6th and the second from Dec. 17th to Jan. 8th. Altogether it includes an additional 20 more days of bird hunting season. The extra time is evidently based on greater numbers of birds in surveys that have been taken in Texas.

Remember that you have to have that hunting license and it's time - you may have to get in line so don't wait until the last minute this afternoon.
